Myth: You Have to Choose Between Creative and Site Optimization

Busted!

While there is, and probably always will be, a battle between creative and design, ShopVisible is a happy medium where it is possible to have a site at the top of the search engine results that still beams with creativity and innovation. Most people will argue and say that copy, tags and links are needed to optimize a website. Creatives want to use flashy images, videos and pop-ups that Google ignores in its search algorithm.

But why not have the best of both worlds? Check out some of our clients’ sites. While all are designed from the inside out for maximum optimization, they are all customizable and unique with unlimited room for creativity and design.
When designing a new site or even refreshing an old site our programmers work closely with the designers on developing an eye catching site that is easily spidered by Google. We have many proprietary techniques that we use to optimize our site, many of which revolve around the way our Site Manager handles inventory.

(Warning: This might get a bit technical)

We love Div tags and Style sheets because the code is clean and easily read by search engines. When rendering a page we don’t include strange symbols in the URL, instead we try to make the URL as descriptive as possible using plain text. This helps both search engines as well as customers browsing our site. We tag and name everything, although Google may not weigh tags and names heavily when ranking a site, because it does help Google figure out what kind of content is on our page and why it would be relevant to a customer.

And after all of that, you can still have a beautiful site displaying all of your flare that will draw in customers.

Check it out.
